Provencal gite for 5 people between a stream, a pool, a forest, and fields
About Christine Jousset
Retired professor, I choose to live in Estoublon in Provence for 5 years after spending many years in a city-dweller life. I currently spend all my time to renovate my house and the gite of the Aïgo de Vido in order to share this place with others, family, friends or holidaymakers.
Christine Jousset purchased this Cottage in 1989
Why Christine Jousset chose Estoublon
Since 1989 (date of purchase), the Aïgo de Vido gite has always been a welcoming place for my relatives: family and friends; and I decided, 4 years ago, to extend it for holidaymakers from all horizons.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is the originality of the gite location on the stream edge, located in the hollow of a valley, surrounded by nature without being isolated from others that seduce me at time of purchase as well as the presence of water, a stream and a pool, in a warm-summer region.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at Christine's gite. The location is exactly what we were looking for, nice and tranquil but with stunning scenary around us and amenities a short walk away. Also a perfect base to explore the region with many beautiful towns, villages and natural wonders just a short drive away. Christine was very friendly and helpful and the gite was great. Really nicely laid out and decorated with everything you could need. Our 10 year old loved swimming,
playing and lounging by the pool (so did we) which was right next to the gite and a good size. There are few seating/eating areas around the gite so you can either chase or hide from the sun as you prefer. Our favourite area was down by the river at the back of the gite which gets the sun first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening. We didn't want to leave and will be back. Thank you Christine! John, Magali and Esmee.
Lovely gite in beautiful surroundings
This is a particularly impressive property, one of the best we've stayed in. It's very well appointed and equipped, spacious, spotlessly clean. It's in a lovely rural setting, with a small stream running nearby, nightingales and orioles singing all around (good luck with spotting them though), and masses of brilliant wild flowers in spring. The ten-metre pool is kept very clean. The owner Christine was welcoming and most helpful, while always discreet and allowing privacy.
A perfect and peaceful place to stay
The property is a small self contained house, just the right size for a couple. One side faces out onto a good sized terrace and swimming pool, and two others onto gardens. There are plenty of places to sit, in or out of the sun as you choose. The house is immaculately thought out to make the most of the space, very clean and well appointed. The kitchen has all anyone would need for self catering. Christine is a friendly host, living in her house opposite the property, available if you have any questions. We found it peaceful and very comfortable, with easy access to surrounding towns and villages. The Saturday market at Riaz is to be recommended, as is a visit to the Gorge of Trevans.
Lovely setting and so quiet
Having a swimming pool available was sheer luxury. Owner, Christine gave us a warm welcome, always ready to help out if needed, speaks a little English so we got by with our little French. The accommodation is very well equipped and all you need for a comfortable stay. The seating available in various parts of the garden are superb. At the bottom of the garden is a dried up river bed which is lovely to walk along and next to it is a running river. We love bird watching and got such a lovely surprise seeing a Night Jar which are rare to see. They come out like the Bats do as it goes dark and hunt for insects. Seeing that just made our holiday there. The biggest draw back is no Wfi which is needed by most on holiday, and if this was to be installed we would go back again for another holiday.
Merci pour vos commentaires élogieux pour mon gîte.
Je vous confirme que l'installation du wi-fi est prévue pour la saison prochaine et qu'actuellement une connexion est toujours possible au café et à l'épicerie du village: c'est à 10 minutes à pied ... mais c'est peut-être aussi le charme du monde rural.
A bientôt alors et avec plaisir.
I confirm you that the installation of the Wi-Fi is planned for the next season and that at present a connection is always possible for the coffee(café) and for the grocer's shop of the village: it is in 10 minutes on foot but it is maybe also the charm of the rural world.
See you soon then and with pleasure.
Glorious hidden cottage in Southern France
We couldn't have had a better stay here. The house is wonderful! It has everything you need, including a great pool just outside to escape the heat. The house is light, spacious and beautifully refurbished inside with lots of space for sitting, eating and drinking outside too. We had a magical time exploring the fantastic area with its gorge, mountains and wildlife. The village itself is also really great, friendly people and a lovely local restaurant. The owners are incredibly kind and accommodating, we were made to feel totally at home. We would highly recommend this place. 5 stars!
